About Us

Deans, Associate Deans, GP Directors & Assistant GP Directors

Our Postgraduate Deans, Associate Postgraduate Deans GP Directors and Assistant GP Directors provide practical knowledge, experience and accountability for postgraduate medical training throughout Scotland.

Each of the four Scottish Deanery Regions has specially appointed Postgraduate Deans and Associate Postgraduate Deans. For information about the Dental Postgraduate Dean and Associate Postgraduate Dean, please refer to the dental section of our website.

The day to day management of specialty training, including responsibility for the quality management of Specialty Training programmes, rests with the postgraduate Deans who are accountable to NES.

The Postgraduate Deans are ultimately accountable for managing the delivery of postgraduate medical training to the standards required by the regulatory body, the General Medical Council (GMC).

The Associate Postgraduate Deans are responsible for the management of the specialty training programmes, whilst providing additional support and practical advice to the Medical Directorate.

Below is a list of Post Graduate Deans, Associate Post Graduate Deans, GP Directors and Assistant GP Directors by NES Region. If you wish to contact any of the PGDs, APGDs or GP Directors please use our Contact page: http://www.scotlanddeanery.nhs.scot/contact/
